Martin,

     In [1], you submitted the following comment on the Last Call Working 
Draft of XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0 Serialization on behalf of the I18N 
Working Group:

<<
[9] Section 3, 'encoding': "If this parameter is not specified, and
   the output method does not specify any additional requirements,
   the encoding used is implementation defined."
   This should be more specific. In the absence of an 'encoding'
   parameter, information e.g. given to an implementation via an
   option, and specific information for a particular 'host language'
   (e.g. other than XQuery or XSLT), there should be a default of
   UTF-8.
>>

     Thanks to you and the working group for this comment.  The XSL and 
XML Query Working Groups discussed your comment.

     In response to another last call issue, the encoding parameter is no 
longer optional.  Therefore, any host specification is obliged to specify 
how the value of the parameter is determined.  This is reflected in the 23 
July Working Draft of Serialization.[2] There is no longer a need for any 
change to Serialization.

     May I ask you to confirm that this response is acceptable to the I18N 
Working Group?

Thanks,

Henry [On behalf of the XSL and XML Query Working Groups]
